Meet the beautiful Sophie! Sophie is a good natured pup with lots of energy. Sophie gets along great with other dogs and loves to play with them. We are not sure about cats or young children as her foster family does not have any in their household.
Sophie loves to be petted and snuggled once she is played out. She loves tummy rubs and just to be around people and other canines. She also prefers to sleep with her humans and loves to cuddle next to you at night.
Sophie would do great in a fenced back yard as she loves to run and jump. Sophie does alright on a leash, but could use more training in this area, weather permitting. She does not pull on the leash, but she is timid when walking with one. Foster mom believes she will overcome this very quickly as she loves being outdoors whenever possible.
Sophie is not food aggressive and has not shown any aggressive behaviors toward other pets or people. Sophie will bark at someone she does not know, but will be more timid of them then they will be of her. Once you earn her trust, which does not take very long, she will be your shadow wanting attention and to play
Potty training is a work in progress. She is so busy running around in the back yard that she forgets that it is potty time. She needs many prompts and even though it’s hard to ignore her this needs to be done as she will go to the bathroom outside. Sophie is teachable and, with guidance and structure, I think she will master potty training in no time.
Sophie would bring joy to any family as she has brought smiles and laughter into ours.
